Miss F (name withheld for anonymity) had been thinking about doing a boudoir session for herself for ages. She’s turning 40 soon (can you believe it?) and she finally decided to just jump right in and give it a go.
I was taking a plunge with this one too – it was my first time being asked to do a boudoir session, but I was more than happy to give it a shot – I loved the idea of celebrating yourself and being comfortable in your own skin.
Miss F found me through her sister who has seen some of my other work, and she connected the two of us. I’m so glad she did, because this was such a fun day.
F and I looked into hotels and decided on one for the shoot, and I brought on Makeup by Carmela to pamper and polish this already ravishing woman. We wanted sultry, relaxed, va-va-voom without overdoing it. She did a superb job on the hair and makeup!
On the day of the shoot we all relaxed, joked around, and just enjoyed each other’s company. The photo portion flowed really nicely, with Miss F being a phenomenal model taking creative direction but also *totally* turning the hotness up to 11. To be honest, it wasn’t hard considering she’s a knockout bombshell, but it was important for me that she *felt* comfortable and beautiful, since that’s inevitably what makes a person look their best.
In the end, I think the day went absolutely wonderfully. We had a really great time and the photos turned out just like I had envisioned: feminine, romantic, sultry, almost filmic. Classy, not trashy. I think that’s what a boudoir session celebrating yourself should be.
Thanks so much for a marvellous, memorable time, ladies!
